Solidarity Needed. If you have time this Monday, April 22 at 9am, we need you! Tamika Powell, Brightmoor Homes resident will be in court this Monday at 9am in 36th District Court, room 434. You know how court can be an indimidating experience with opposing counsel on a first name basis with the judge and the push of a crowded docket to minimize any attempt to explain or defend oneself. "Not relevant!", says opposing counsel. Well, human beings are relevant and only with support can folks get some tilt in the scales back toward justice. Please come out if you can and join with others from Brightmoor and Detroit Eviction Defense.

Tell Flagstar Bank & Fannie Mae Stop Trying to Evict Detroiters of Good Faith Like Barbara Campbell! Organized by Detroit Eviction Defense, this is one of three rallies being held around metro Detroit the same weekend in support of Barbara Campbell. Let's show up in sufficient numbers to get the bank's attention. Parking on Wiltshire St., the side street south of the bank. Park beyond the "No Parking This Side of Sign" sign which is partly obscured by a tree. Signs provided or bring your own. BACKGROUND As Barbara Campbell fights to survive heart surgery, kidney failure, and cancer, Flagstar Bank is trying to evict her from her Detroit home. Ms. Campbell applied in 2013 for a hardship modification to her mortgage, and the company servicing the mortgage told her she could stop paying while the modification was under review. Then the servicer suddenly foreclosed, citing her “failure” to make payments. Now Flagstar wants a court order to evict Ms. Campbell. She's fighting that injustice and we urge you to join us in rallying to her defense. For more information: www.detroitevictiondefense.org/index.php#campbell

Ms. Campbell's home was sold from Flagstar Bank to Nationstar after she requested a modification after she was diagnosed with cancer, kidney disease and had a pacemaker put in. She subsequently suffered several strokes. Neither Flagstar or Nationstar sent her application to Fannie Mae for modification review despite Nationstar writing her a letter stating they would not foreclose on her home during the modification review. Ms. Campbell sought assistance through Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence's office and Flagstar launched an investigation again indicating they would not evict Ms. Campbell from her home. Now Flagstar is evicting Ms. Campbell from her home We can still stop this! Attend the court and show your support. Make your call Today... Please call Flagstar and Fannie Mae and stop this illegal eviction. Loan No. 0596526028- Address- 1001 Covington Dr. #3, Detroit, MI 48203 Flagstar, Office of President 1-800-968-7700; Fannie Mae 1-800-732-6643

Join neighbors and supporters at a free concert to build support for Lela Whitfield’s Defense of her home. With Performances by: Will See Stan Hope Miz Korona Hans Christopher Malik Yakini Rocket McFlyy More artists to be announced! The Detroit Free Press had this to say on Lela’s Fight: “The bungalow has long been occupied by a woman who wants to buy it and fix it up — just the kind of person any neighborhood wants. But any day now, a judge could order her out. Lela Whitfield doesn’t plan on moving. Her mission is to stay rooted to her childhood home on Manistique and to keep trying to buy it. And that has drawn activists, church leaders, lawyers and neighbors, all trying to stop not only her eviction but the incessant tide of foreclosures and evictions across Detroit.” Detroit Eviction Defense & Freedom Farms w: DetroitEvictionDefense.org t: @EvictDefense

Keep Andrews Acheampong and his family in their Home! Mr. Andrews Acheampong is married and raising two small children while working as a truck driver. He’s been living in his home for 25 years. Like so many families, Andrews found himself getting fewer and fewer hours at work. The family’s income was decreasing, while the mortgage payments kept increasing. Call Bank of America and demand that they call off the eviction of the Acheampong Family! Come to our public meeting and demonstration on Saturday, August 2 at 12:00 p.m. at 10707 North Oak Drive! Andrews reached out to Bank of America for a loan modification and in 2009 he received a trial modification reducing his monthly payments from $1,260.79 to $997.17. Bank of America said that if he made 3 payments he would receive a permanent loan modification. Andrews made 5 payments before Bank of America refused to accept any more payments. Andrews then received a letter from an eviction firm asking him if he wanted to be reviewed for a modification again. Andrews responded that he wanted to be reviewed, turned in all the information, and still never heard anything back from Bank of America. Now Bank of America and Bank of New York Mellon (acting as Bank of America’s trustee) are threatening to evict the Acheampong family. We must act now to defend him and our community from this unjust eviction. Take action to support the Acheampong Family! 1. Call Bank of America at 1-877-877-2670 and Bank of New York Mellon at 1-800-269-6776 (wait through the recording and leave a message) to demand that they sell Andrews Acheampong his home for its real value or modify and reinstate his mortgage to keep him in his home! His address is 10707 North Oak Drive in Ferndale, Michigan 48220. 2. Come to our public meeting and demonstration at the Acheampong home on 10707 North Oak Drive on Saturday, August 2 at 12:00 p.m. We will be leaving the home at 1:00 p.m. to protest outside of the Bank of America branch on 4001 W. 8 Mile Road.

Twelve families are fighting to save their homes in the Gratiot McDougall development located on Detroit’s east side. Peter Barclae, the failed Oakland County developer who pledged to sell them their homes when they moved in, now refuses to honor that obligation after taking tens of thousands of dollars in payment. Instead, he seeks to evict the families as “tenants.” He rejects their offers to buy the homes and refuses to repair the many defects caused by shoddy construction. As part of the federal government’s HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Barclae built the homes near Eastern Market and was contracted to sell them to the Detroit families who took occupancy. He now refuses to honor that contract and is trying to sell the homes to Midas Development Corporation, a Singapore company which has tried to market the homes to Asian and American investors as rental properties— to be managed by Midas. A recent mass picket and rally at Midas’ Pontiac offices convinced the company to take the homes off its web site! The families are fighting in court to stop Barclae’s arrogant breach of contract. They want to buy their homes and save the neighborhood from the blight that will surely follow if they are evicted. Keep the Gratiot McDougall Families in their homes! Stop Blight Before It Happens! Join Us: Friday, July 11th, at Noon @ the St. Regis Hotel parking lot that Peter Barclae owns (NW corner of Woodward Ave. & West Grand Blvd.) We will rally and leaflet his customers, business associates and the general public to demand that Peter Barclae honor his contracts with the Gratiot McDougall families. *********************************** What else can you do? Call Peter Barclae at 248-561-5546 and demand he honor his contracts and sell to the Gratiot McDougall families. Let him know his actions are destructive to individual’s lives and communities. Detroit will not be bullied! ****************************************** Detroit Eviction Defense has open meetings every Thursday, 6pm, at Old St. John’s Church, 2120 Russell, near Eastern Market. Bring your concerns and ideas. For more information, go to detroitevictiondefense.org. Call 313-429-5009
